Below is a list of books I've acquired this past week. Can't wait to dip into them.


by Aprilynne Pike - my review

-because I'm feeling feeling Fae-ish

How to Ditch Your Fairy
by Justine Larbalestier - my review

-still feeling Fae-ish

I got the first but I like the second cover better!

For review:

I was visited by my first Book Fairy - Lisa!

I'm excited because for the first time, I received books in the mail for "formal" book reviews.

Ghostgirl: Rest in Popularity
by Tonya Hurley

Ghostgirl: Homecoming (the sequel)
by Tonya Hurley

-both because they're my first requested reviews

Charlotte Usher feels practically invisible at school, and then one day she really is invisible. Even worse: she's dead. And all because she choked on a gummy bear. But being dead doesn't stop Charlotte from wanting to be popular; it just makes her more creative about achieving her goal.

If you thought high school was a matter of life or death, wait till you see just how true that is. In this satirical, yet heartfelt novel, Hurley explores the invisibility we all feel at some times and the lengths we'll go to be seen.

R.I.P. - Read In Peace


by Orson Scott Card - my review

-because I enjoyed the Ender series. Also, this story transforms "the timeless story of Sleeping Beauty into a original fantasy brimming with romance and adventure."


If There Be Thorns
by V.C. Andrews - my review

-because this is part 3 of the Dollanganger series. I'm in for more wacky horror. Also, I'm working on my VCA Challenge
